  • Notes 
    • “George Gordon Bissell was born August 29, 1863, in Rome, New York. His father was Charles Forman Bissell, and his mother’s maiden name was Julia Ann Barnard. He was a descendant of John Bissell, Jr., eldest son of John Bissell (called John the Settler), who was born in England and emigrated with his father to Plymouth, Massachusetts, in 1628, and to Windsor, Connecticut, in 1639.

      “George Gordon Bissell was the youngest child in a family of five children. There were two of these five children living when the family came to Austin, Texas, in 1880. He attended Bickler Academy for young men, from which he graduated. He married Lina von Rosenberg on December 25, 1890. The marriage service was performed by the Episcopal minister, Rev. Lee.

      “While living in Ft. Worth, he was with C. H. Sillerman Brokerage Company, taking care of their legal affairs. On his return to Austin, he was with the law firm of Judge D. W. Doom, under the name of Doom and Bissell. After Judge Doom’s death George continued in business with Dave Doom, son of D. W. Doom. He was in this business until his death on November 7, 1923.” [10]
